About the event
Join this FREE webinar placing popular food allergy myths in the limelight! Presented by our amazing Accredited Practising Dietitian, Hannah!
What food allergy myths will we be busting?
Well, that’s up to you! What allergy myths have you heard? Do you have a simple question that you’ve been too shy to ask? Or what would you like confirmed by a Dietitian? It might be related to your line of work (within an aged care home or childcare centre), or to you personally or a family member. Let us know what you would like us to talk about.
These are the common allergy myths that we hear often:
- People can have allergens in small amounts even though they are allergic.
- Restrict all common allergic foods when starting infants on solids to avoid a reaction
- Toddlers will grow out of the egg, peanut and dairy allergies
- Cooked dairy is ok to eat for people with a dairy allergy
- Why are there nuts in cornflakes?!
Give us your ideas when you RSVP.
We only use the latest evidence-based practice to shine the light on the truth. Let’s debunk some food allergy myths!
Please note: we will not be covering intolerance within this webinar. Allergies and Intolerances are too much to cover within a 30 minute webinar. Think of it like this, a Food Intolerance is an adverse reaction to food that does not involve the immune system. Whereas an allergy is an immune system response to a food protein that the body mistakenly believes is harmful and can affect a person’s gastrointestinal tract, skin, breathing and/or heart. If you have any questions regarding food intolerances, please email us your interest and we’ll let you know if when we create an Food Intolerance Webinar. Alternatively, we have a Food Allergy and Intolerance training that can be completed by our Dietitians virtually or onsite.
